    Nice to see another update! Your new plant selections are looking very good!

    Yes I'm quite pleased with them , it's great to be able to specify varying sizes to the minky/jvc veg and since Malcolm told me it's possible to drop the bases of the vegetation under the ground, it has saved me many hours work ,I hate floating shrubs grass etc, I wish more creators would remember to add this feature to their creations , makes things so much easier. Thanks to all who have given feedback, makes it easier to continue as some days the task appears insurmountable ..... it's a big route,

    Not seen an update on this subject for a while. Was wondering how it was coming along? I hope you are doing ok.

    As I’ve said before, what we all have seen looks great.

    Looking at some of the recent post that you have done on the download station, are you also working on D&RGW’s Antonito to Chama?

    Dangavel has been putting a lot of work into the Timberline route. There is a thread for that going standard gauge. I am amazed at how much productivity he maintains!

    EDIT: Correction, in the route name: Timber Ridge. Sorry!

    had some issues with corruption, means i lost about a weeks work , a BIG weeks work , I'm psyching myself up to go back and sort it out, meanwhile I've been working on the timber ridge line in standard gauge for TRS2019. i did some work on Chama to Antonito years back but that was adapting someone else's route in 2012 , had some issues with it doing some strange things with vegetation . the Uintah is still on hand , i have to make a decision about whether to complete it in TANE or drop it into 2019, but that will no doubt cause lots of problems. i'm mulling over whether to release it in sections , then if another part corrupts it will not affect the rest of it.

    I’m very sorry to hear about the corruption. I can understand why it may take a while to psych yourself up to go back to it after losing a lot of work. The only thing I can say is that you have a lot us rooting for you on this route and looking forward to it. What we have seen of it has been impressive.

    As for breaking it up. Since it is possible to merge routes in Trainz, though I don’t know how much trouble this would be since I’ve not done it. It might be helpful, since you would be dealing with smaller areas and they would be easier and faster to backup as well. I would hope the completed route could be merged and it would be one where you could going from Mack to Watson and beyond, but that is me.

    On whether to drop TANE and go to 2019, imho the question at the moment would be which would be easier for you. Most TANE routes will run in 2019, you get some improvement in graphics by going to 2019, but at a cost. Again, speaking for myself, I’m going to get this route whether it is for TANE or 2019.

    On Antonito to Chama, I saw a few recent things you had put on the Download Station, for the Cumbres Toltec and it got me to wondering. I’ve been working on learning a CAD program by working on the snow shed at Cumbres. Of course, the biggest problem is Antonito and how do you do three rail track for trainz.

    Back to the topic, I hope you able to psych yourself back to the Uintah soon and we all really appreciate the work you have done. From what we all have seen this is truly a very great route. I’ve sent links to your screenshots to some modeler friends to show what can be done in Trainz.

    Lightbulb Route Example of separate Modules to merge.

    Evening Sir Dan,


    Here is a Route for reference, that is cut up for distribution Pieces, you can make the Route as large or as small as you want...........It took a little time with some of the corners but it worked out great for me.........Maybe this will help you with some ideas about cutting up your Route into pieces (modules) as you complete the sections..........

    thanks very much for your kind words, i Do intend to go back to it soon, the watson to bonanza section is pretty much complete. I'll probably go back to that change the vegetation fix any major flaws and release it all as a WIP. if it remains in house and i suddenly drop dead it would be a shame if no one could ever drive it but me .

    That's interesting Blue, I had seen those various routes, but had not realized they were pieces parts and wasn't sure what to make of them. Nice to know. I am like ursa2, I have never tried to merge routes, but I guess there is always the day to learn something new. It would be interesting to try to break up the Uintah, as from what I have seen one would always be missing something really cool unless he had all the pieces!

    Forester,

    I think you would like the CDE Trainz Routes, they are not too large, and all you do when you merge, change the one of Layer names by a letter or number........

    "route-layer" becomes "routea-layer" or whatever you like.....Some folks are quite Creative in naming conventions..........

    Slide one of the end pieces in on corner........

    Here is a picture of the Route Merges........So you get a feel of how this Route might look.......


    I took and double added the same Module of this Route in two different spots, because I want to change the second module by expanding the lake Water areas..........Kind of like Kit Bashing things together for alternate purposes........In this Route, there are no blank Tile Boards, they give you all the pieces.......I didn't have a picture of completed Route, so it took me a couple of nights to fool around and figure what pieces fit together.......


    Also while I think about it FootplatePhil has done this with his Weddin Route too......If you goto his Thread he discusses how he sets up the different Routes for merging too......

    https://forums.auran.com/trainz/show...s-on-DLS/page2

    Goto msg #52....

    See this part of it.....Bottom of last Photo in Msg #52....

    Quotes:

    Merge Instructions.

    1. Download the new 'WeddinNSW - Young Extension' module from the DLS.

    2. Clone WeddinNSW V4 to your own KUID.

    3. In Surveyor 'Edit' your cloned version of WeddninNSW V4.

    4. You will need to position the compass/cursor at the southern end of Weddin, just in front of the staging yard.

    5. Delete the two (untextured) base boards either side of the staging yard using the 'Topology - Delete Section' tool.

    6. Delete the last section of track (which should now be suspended across free air) using the 'Tracks - Delete track' tool.

    7. Click the 'System Menu' button at the lop left of screen and select 'Merge Route'.

    8. Select 'WeddinNSW - Young Extension' from the list of routes in the 'Merge Route' panel.

    9. You should now seen a window with a section of Weddin displayed in map view. Use the mouse scroll wheel to scroll out until the entire Weddin's route is visible.

    10. By clicking on the white arrows displayed in the Merge Window position the extension module so it adjoins the southern end of the Weddin map. If any part of the map is displayed in red the two maps are overlapping, and you need to adjust the alignment. When the alignment is correct the red exclamation mark at the top left of the merge window will disappear, and you can click the 'tick' button to complete the merge.

    11. Use the 'Tracks - move track' tool to attach the two track spline points either side of the merge point.

    12. Save the merged route.



    If this merge process seems too complicated, you can always wait for the next release of WeddinNSW, which will include the Young extension. At present I have no estimate of when the next release will be available. I am waiting for NV3 to resolve some of the issues with TurfFX.

    Tomtre is working on an updated version of Southlines, which will merge with the extended WeddinNSW. Again, no release date for this has yet been determined. In the meantime if you wish to join Southlines 2014 to the extended WeddinNSW you will need to first delete the Southlines base boards corresponding/overlapping with WeddinNSW Young extension.
